EastEnders spoilers: Phil Mitchell makes ultimate betrayal to ‘secure’ sale of Queen Vic

Phil Mitchell (played by Steve McFadden) has been working hard since the death of his step-son Denny Rickman (Bleu Landau), trying to find a way to keep his life in the thoughts of the Albert Square residents. The Eastenders longtimer decided since the Queen Vic was for sale, he would buy it in memory of Denny and to make Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) happy. However, as he struggles for money, Danny Hardcastle (Paul Usher) will return to the BBC soap offering Phil a very tempting offer. Will he take the offer if it means damaging his relationship with his son Ben (Max Bowden).

EastEnders fans watched a couple of months ago as Albert Square was rocked by the tragic death of Denny at the Queen Vic boat party. 

Sharon has been struggling ever since, and even gave up her newborn baby Kayden, telling the baby’s grandma Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) she couldn’t face the challenge of grieving and being a new mother. 

At first, Sharon blamed Phil for his death, and she wasn’t completely wrong, but it was down to the actions of Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) that caused Denny’s death. 

Phil promised to make things better for Sharon and when he heard Mick (Danny Dyer) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) were selling the Queen Vic, he said he wanted to get it in memory of Denny.

In upcoming scenes, Phil is stunned when he receives a gift he was going to surprise Dennis with and when Ben spots the present, he tries to talk to his dad. 

As the father and son reminisce about Denny and his short life, Phil will grow frustrated because Ben isn’t able to hear him properly, leaving them both upset. 

He storms off to the Queen Vic and tries to put pressure on Mick and Linda to hurry the sale, but Phil’s issue now is that he is struggling with money, but someone from his past is set to return to offer him a deal. 

Danny Hardcastle has been a part of the show on and off for the last year and he was last seen just a month ago when he came to visit Ben. 

Since the boat party, Ben is almost completely deaf and when he couldn’t understand what Danny was offering, he stormed off. 

In upcoming scenes, Danny will return and overhear Phil struggling offering to help him if he helps Danny with a job. 

Phil is interested at first, but when Danny makes fun of Ben and mocks his hearing Phil will be left furious. 

He will turn down the offer hoping to be able to get Ben to help him so they can get the money themselves, but is it too late for the duo? 

If Ben says no to his dad, could Phil go back to Danny and get himself into even more trouble?

Phil doesn’t have a squeaky clean past, not even a little bit, but he is trying to get himself back on track recently and has even offered to help Linda get sober. 

However, it will all come down to how desperately Phil needs this pub to deal with Denny’s death. 

As Ben goes into a very dangerous operation to try and save his hearing, Phil could be forced to decide between supporting his son and doing the job for Danny. 

Will Ben survive the operation and be able to hear again and will Phil finally be able to win the Queen Vic but without the support of his son?

  • EastEnders spoilers: Jean Slater hospitalised as Kush makes error

Elsewhere on the Square, Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) confronted Phil earlier this week saying that she missed her children.

As viewers know, Jean’s daughter Stacey (Lacey Turner) left Albert Square after hitting Phil over the head with a wrench last year to save her family, but Ben sent her away. 

But, Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghahandi) has been noticing Jean’s behaviour is becoming more erratic and once he realised she had stopped taking her bipolar medicine, he decided to take matters into his own hands. 

Kush crushed medicine into Jean’s dinner earlier this week, but in upcoming scenes Jean could be hospitalised. Will Kush own up to what he has done? 

EastEnders airs on BBC One Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 7.30pm.
